Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
The first thing you ought to now about me is that I'm new to beta reading. Second, English is not my first language. I think I have a superiority complex when it comes to the stories I read and review, weird as that sounds. (Then again, I could be wrong.)
I don't know what to say anymore. I don't like this section at all.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I've a decent grasp of grammar, and I'm rather skilled when it comes to spelling. I also like descriptive writing, so I think I can help you with painting a decent picture of a specific scene. Since English is not my first language, you can have a different point of view when it comes to your story. That is, I can tell you whether your story is decent enough that others can understand it.

I also prefer simple English to not-so-simple English. I think that will help writers who tend to get lost in their metaphors, so to speak.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My vocabulary is limited. I mean, I know how to use a dictionary and all that, but I find it hard to use big words into great sentences. For example, quiescence. So if your writing tends to have big words like that, and if you're the flowery type who gets all emotional, I probably won't understand what you're trying to say.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Genres I enjoy include supernatural, drama, and suspense. I would also like to try my hand at beta-reading mystery stories. I think I have a good eye for inconsistencies and all that. Furthermore, I would also like to try beta-reading a story written completely in Filipino! There are very little Filipino-language stories in this site, it seems...
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Romance. Please, not romance. I can read it, but I can't beta-read it. I don't think I can take it. I can beta-read stories with pairings, so to speak, but I don't think I can handle it if the story only talks about the relationship or relationships. And please, no slash or yaoi or fluff. Not my cup of tea. I can proof read an M-rated story for you, but I'd rather not read anything with blatant sex in it, simply because I won't be able to say anything constructive about it. Violence and language is okay, though. I'd rather not beta-read severe angst, either. I don't need the extra anxiety in my life. And I'd rather not beta-read anything with OCs as the main character, unless it's really really good.
As for Filipino stories... I'm Tagalog, and I won't be able to read anything in another dialect. :(
